This vegetarian bistro Rocks. I was waiting for friends to finish a mtg in Downtown St Pete and wanted a light lunch. This fit perfectly. Excellent appetizer sized portions. Roasted Cauliflower, halumi with mint sauce, tabouli that is garden fresh and a glass of Pinot Noir to round it out. It's are between 7 - 9 and easily shared. Space... More

Great atmosphere, service and great menu. I knew before I arrived I wanted falafel in a pita and that's what I got. A wheat pita that in and of itself was fabulous - was told it was from a recipe brought over from the old country. The falafel was so tasty as were all the ingredients. Highly recommend.

Last weekend, during our visit to St. Pete Beach, we drove into downtown St. Petersburg to have lunch at Meze. This is a cozy and lovely place. Interesting Café with an interesting menu which is totally vegetarian! We had Falafel, Cauliflower and Zatar which we thoroughly enjoyed. We also had Moroccan Mint Tea which was oh so good. I would... More

Cold borscht was better than my own, mushroom hummus was great, and the vegan chicken shish was INSANE!

It is extremely challenging finding a restaurant with more than 1 vegetarian (let alone vegan) option so much to our dismay, we were all excited to come upon Meze while strolling through St. Pete. The food was absolutely superb. Our kids ordered the falafel and vegan nuggets plates, which were so good they ordered 2 more. The adults ordered the... More

Best truly vegetarian restaurant in Tampa Bay. All the dishes are authentic and very good. We had the garlic hummus, acorn squash special and Moroccan chicken dinner. The acorn squash is a terrific dish.

We chose Meze 119 because it was very close to the Dali Museum, and looked like it had healthy food at reasonable prices. We love mediterranean food, and while we do not eat strictly vegetarian or vegan, we enjoy vegetarian food, and we were delighted with lunch. I think my young adult daughter might have won the food jackpot with... More

Stumbled across Meze while walking through St Pete. So glad we stopped. Mediterranean food at its finest! The food is very reasonably priced for downtown St Pete. The service was excellent! Or server was very good at explaining what everything was and helping us decide what we wanted. I wanted to the try the whole menu. You have to try... More

Our first time to this restaurant, and we will be back. Couldn't decide what to get, so we chose the sampler salad. You get three choices from their 6 or so salads. And each portion was pretty big, so it was an excellent choice for the $. All salads were delicious and fresh.

Meze is not your run-of-the-mill vegetarian/vegan restaurant, which is probably why the tables are full by 5:30. Super tasty hummus, soups and (wow!) those daily specials are what keep even carnivores (who are taking the night off from the flesh) coming back at a steady pace.
